Food for thought

Interviewed few ppl for jobs in tier 2/3 cities

They said they would rather work in Bangalore/Mumbai/Hyderabad than stay back in their villages

They said- they wanted to work with the best

Then ppl blame politicians for not providing jobs to Tier 2/3 cities
Then majority of the ppl from Bangalore always tell

Ultimately We want to work in Bay Area or May be HK, SG, AUS, UK, EU, NZ, Dubai etc

Reasons

Commute : I don’t want spend my life in traffic jams

Employers: who don’t let us take vacations

Infrastructure: bad roads

More 💰
Ppl working in central London

What would be nice is

- Working from home in a country side
- More time with family
- More time with nature
- I want to grow vegetables whilst I work for an investment bank

Back to country side

Challenges #Entrepreneurs
Face & #stress in #startups making sense of recent events 1.Entrepeneurship is hard, fraught with high risk, never a straight line to success, every day pressures and many times bordering between total failure to huge potential success.... 1/n
..2/n 2.Emotional roller coaster that entrepreneur goes through can easily take its toll, as often within the same day, they go through huge swings of exhilaration and frustration. This needs strong mental ability to handle.
#startups #entrepreneur #Mentalhealth #stress.. 2/n
..3/n 3. It's very lonely at the top. With a need to project positive attitude and show strength to all the other stakeholders for the founder to do their job.There is no support or ecosystem that can help each other mutually.#startups

To mark the occasion of #LaborDay2019, I will transcribe an interesting, 91-year old #German text on #Marxism that has never entered the #internet before this post of mine. (I tried quite a lot to find the text, to no avail.) I will manually transcribe it, then translate it.
..
..I won't give the source, and also won't say WHY I don't give the source.

I repeat that it is a literal quote (from a 1928 publication), probably published during the #WeimarRepublic:

"#Marximus .. [ist] .. staats-, gesellschaft- und kulturzerstörend .. gegen jeden Staat,..
..jede Gesellschaft, jede Kultur ... ist #Marxismus ein #Aufruhr der #Eigensucht
gegen das #Gemeinwohl, also das Gegenteil jedes wahren #Sozialismus, denn Sozialismus muss stets das Wohl des Ganzen dem des Teiles voranstellen ... seine „Vorfurcht“ [sic; see dictionary entry

The shocking truth about entrepreneurship: It's not for everyone.

You can achieve the results to a fulfilled lifestyle with a job that pays around 120k.

You don't have to be a millionaire to be happy.

Nothing wrong with that at all!
Just because the internet has made the 9-5 life ugly, doesn't mean it is.

You can have a great job and work with great people, work hard and make a lot of money and go home to the rest of the night of free time.

#Entrepreneurs don't really get that, it's on ALL THE TIME.
In the wise words of Stone Sour:

'I don't want to have it all, I just want to have enough' - Corey Taylor

You can do this, I believe in you all 💪

[THREAD] In chapter 4, we discuss how to solve for #HumanCapital challenges in #VC. So if we haven’t found a strong argument why we shouldn't try & build a fund from scratch as there appears no structural barrier to entry that cannot be overcome — how do we therefore do this?
1.) Where to look first?

The churn in top tier performance is drastically increasing as the VC market matures & #Alpha is dispersed due to the inherent inefficiencies. Only the best funds plan for succession.
2.) Ultimately, VCs firms are small partnerships. Behavioural challenges in #InvestmentPartnerships include:

•Economic Allocation
•Shared Decision Making
•Diffused Responsibility
•Personal Risk Minimisation
•Go-along-to-get-along Interaction

In 2015, Olivia Onyemaobi raised a campaign against sexual abuse. She found out that some girls get abused by men who offer to help them get sanitary pads. To solve the problem, she started @PadupC
In Nigeria, some girls sometimes stay out of school during their menstrual cycle because they can’t afford sanitary pads. While some others use tissue, dry grasses, leaves and rags during their menstrual cycle. Just because they can not afford sanitary pads. #Thread
#VUNBlog
Some men cash in on this, by abusing young girls sexually just to provide them sanitary pads. @PadupC makes affordable, washable and reusable sanitary pads. Pad-Up menstrual kits are super thin with high absorption rate. #VUNBlog #VictorUgooNjokuBlog #womenshealth #lifestyle

[THREAD] As a systematic public market investor, #VentureCapital was an asset class that felt opaque to me based on only my limited exposure of #AngelInvesting & my friends in the industry. In this article, I set the context for Unpacking Alpha in Venture Capital.
1.) It is a challenging asset class to digest & I am sure a majority of large institutional pools of capital would struggle to list more than a handful of brand name VC firms or investors.
2.) That said, top decile returns in VC are extremely impressive so I decided to take a deeper look with a view to create an ecology map & building an institutional footprint from first principles.

Let's have our weekly #GlobalEChats and discuss the topic of #foodtech #delivery.

As #food is a necessity, it is natural that #entrepreneurs are lured into venturing in the F&B business. What more with #IR40, we often think of taking business one step ahead: by involving tech!
Now let's break this down into two types of niche within #fooddelivery and #fnb industry.

1. You own the restaurant and you are providing an additional delivery #service.

2. You don't own any restaurant and you are merely the delivery service.

The two are very different!
To help put points into perspective:

#1 is a classic example of pizza stores such as @DominosMY. Any #eatery can set up its own delivery system.

#2 is a rather new invention. Such examples would be @foodpanda_my and @GrabMY's GrabFood service!

Hello, everyone!

We're going to kickstart our weekly #GlobalEChats discussion thread. This week, we'll talk about #fitness #personal #trainer as #entrepreneurs and how #tech can change everything!

Ready? Let's go!
Let's first start with two possibilities in the future.

1. We no longer need humans as #PT personal trainers at the #gym or #field. All will be replaced by #tech and smart applications! 😲

2. Human PTs will still be demanded but will utilise #tech to improve their coaching!
Do you think #1 is truly possible? It seems a bit far-fetched, no?

Meet @ollinfit! Ollinfit is a set of three wearable sensors and smartphone app that work together as your personal trainer. Say what???

Using Ollinfit, you'll be able to workout without needing human coaching!

If you ask if there are more of such stories in #Malaysia, there are!

So what do you make of the wave of #ecommerce these days? Come delve into the ins and outs of it with us!
So #Entrepreneurs out there, what is ecommerce?

It just refers to electronic transactions done in the name of #sale and #purchase.

In simpler terms, you buy and sell things online with the #internet! That's it!
But to whom and from whom can these #transactions take place between? Surprisingly, it's not just between #business (B) and #Customers (C)!

It can take place between:
1. B2B

3. C2C (or P2P)

Let's start our #GEMChats this week. The topic of this week is #student #entrepreneurship!

We'll discuss these three factors in the poll options below as well as replies to the poll 🧐🧐🧐 Let's take this forward!
#Students? And #entrepreneurship? Is that even a good combination?

Especially when you read that the famous student entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are all dropouts!!!

Can students not only run a #business while studying but also be #successful at it?
Taking a different perspective at this is that while these billionaires are college dropouts, the #idea for the #business all came about when they were in #college! As a young #student, your ideas have a chance at being fresh and can be developed through stringent planning!

0/ Thread. Having spent some time with @Nicolas_Colin on his new book HEDGE about #tech, #entrepreneurship, social #policy and the future of the Safety Net, I'm sharing some things that stuck with me, and why HEDGE is one for the ☀️📚📝 #readinglist amazon.com/Hedge-Greater-…
1/ @Nicolas_Colin is thought-provoking not least because of his vantage point - graduated from the French ENA, worked at the top of the French civil service, set up his own company, and invests in startups all over 🇪🇺 with @_TheFamily
2/ Im not one for party politics, and HEDGE isn't about that. It's a book that speaks to the zeitgeist of the #techlash and ways for #startup #founders and #politicians to think about smart, sensible policies to build an inclusive Safety Net 2.0 📖

Does AUSA Moira Kim Penza, prosecutor in the fed. #NXIVM #RICO criminal racketeering case, realize that her indictments of #NXIVM leader, Keith Raniere aka "Vanguard," last March, may have affected the outcome of the 2018 Mexican Presidential Election? #ArizonaMafia #Democrats
Moira Kim Penza is 1 of the main prosecutors in the federal #NXIVM #RICO criminal case. A #RICO case is very serious; it is 1 of the most complex types of prosecutions the U.S. Government can initiate. Moira's boss is Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Atty for the Eastern District of NY.
Penza is a smart lawyer. According to publicly available information, she studied at Cornell Law School, a private Ivy League University located in Ithaca, New York. Cornell was ranked the #13 law school in America, out of 203 law schools, by U.S. News & World Report, in 2018.

Hello, everyone and welcome back to our weekly #GEMChats! This week, we'll discuss the results of the poll on whether #celebrities make successful #entrepreneurs!

Let's begin, shall we?

#startup #womenentrepreneur #business #showbiz
So recently @KylieJenner sparked a heated debate on how celebrities are successful at entrepreneurship when she was announced to become the youngest self-made #billionaire ever.

cnbc.com/2018/07/11/kyl…

#KUWTK
Some feel strongly that she only dethroned #MarkZuckerberg from that position because she is part of the #Kardashian and her #entrepreneurial venture has multi-level of safety net and it allows her to #scaleup at an exponential rate.

Good evening, #entrepreneurs! Let us discuss this week's #GEMChats on #startups and #disruptors to the #tourism industry.

Feel free to #RT, reply and engage with us as we go on with this thread.
The answers to the #poll indicates that most of you feel the biggest gamechanger to the #tourism industry in this #Industry40 is the rise of low cost airlines followed closely by travel accommodations #startups like @Airbnb and @agoda.

Well, you aren't wrong there!
Low cost airlines #democratise travel for everyone. As @tonyfernandes puts it in @AirAsia's tagline: "Now Everyone Can Fly".

Flying had been considered a luxury accessible only to the middle class and well-heeled (sic) - Jack Yu writes at linkedin.com/pulse/now-ever…

Let's discuss this thread in this week's #GEMChats for #entrepreneurs. What are some common mistakes that #startups, especially #fashion startups make that makes them less viable?
Let's breakdown the mistakes into sections of a business. These sections can take form within the Operational, Connectivity and Knowledge aspect of the #startup business. #entrepreneurship #womenentrepreneur

So let's discuss this. Feel free to mention us and let's talk!
Firstly, Knowledge.

Studies have found that 3 out of 4 #startups fail. Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) reported that fashion is one of the most difficult industries.

The lack of knowledge prior to starting and while running a #fashion startup can be a costly mistake.

Let's discuss this topic for this week's #GEMChats on #entrepreneurs and #entrepreneurship.

This week's topic is #Venture #Capitals and what is funding like for #womenentrepreneurs!

Please follow us, RT, reply and Like our #thread to discuss this topic.
In June 2017, @HarvardBiz published an article questioning the discrepancy in VC funding for #entrepreneurs of different genders.

In the US, #female entrepreneurs own 38% of the businesses in the country yet receive only about 2% of all venture funding in the whole country!
Some of you answered the poll that the reason for this phenomenon is that there is a lack of female VCs.

The #data however speaks otherwise; the number of female VCs has increased to 7% from 3% in 2014 and yet the funding gap has only increased.

Why does this happen?

1/ Hey #entrepreneurs #CXO #VC #Marketers,

Since Zuckerberg / Evan Spiegel (Snapchat) may no more be the youngest billionaire, you need to take a note of who it is and what it means to create and market new business in the future.

20-year old #KylieJenner:
- her cosmetics biz valued at $0.9 billion.
- $230M net profit
- Only 7 full-time employees!
- 100% ownership with Kylie

Time for #VC to start funding the Instagram/social-media celeb to fin success.
